Pardon Me

Though heart your ring

May stifle my voice,

And a canvas

May fail to convey.

The comments of

The conscience will be heard

Suffice for survival

This unholy day.

Whoever I wounded

Let love now

Prevail,

And may I also

Be forgiven?

I will take your place

At the morgue

Or the tree,

If you will only forgive me.
